I found this ad on Craigslist from a store claiming it can do 2 years of unlimited for a $50 activation and sim card.

I asked why Google Voice is involved and he said it is programmed in the sim. He also mentioned it is a real voice and text. So not sure how this is done.

The information I googled for Global sat prepaid sim is here:
www.globalmarinenet.com/globalstar-introduces-prepaid-satellite-airtime-calling-cards/

And his Craigslist ad is here:
lasvegas.craigslist.org/mob/6077406044.html

The craigslist ad makes no mention of Globalstar/Inmarsat.[/quote]

I called and asked which company the sim card is thru.

I'd be suspicious of anything with "mob" in the address: "lasvegas.craigslist.org/mob/6077406044.html"

If it sounds too good to be true.......

True, one must be careful as some of them look legit.

It might actually be true--people do win the PowerBall Jackpot.

As suggested by arrynrob it is almost certainly bogus.

Cell service is a commodity that resellers buy wholesale. If someone is "providing" it at a price that differs significantly from what established companies charge, then the "offer" it is not what it appears to be.

I thought it was bogus too but I called anyways because he was local and it intrigued me. I thought maybe he found a workaround.
